Blues for Food 2013

Good music. Delicious food. Great friends. Enthusiastic gardeners.

Really, what could be better?

Enjoy live music by some of the finest blues bands in the Northwest, fresh, tasty food from local vendors, a fabulous auction of luscious, homemade pies, and children’s gardening activities at the 7th annual Blues for Food Fest on Saturday, August 31.

The Blues for Food Fest raises money and awareness for the people and organizations in Seattle that grow and donate 28,000 pounds of organic produce each year for the hungry. Proceeds from the festival go to Seattle’s Giving Garden Network.

Lettuce Link will be there manning our favorite booth -- Beet Hunger -- where you can donate your homegrown produce and non-perishables. After the festival we will deliver all donations to a local food bank or meal program.
